Chicago's Rock Bottom Brewery Fundraises For Mockingbird

T.J. Catalani and the management of the Rock Bottom Brewery in Chicago are graciously fundraising for The Mockingbird Foundation on the weekend that Phish plays in Chicago.

They will be serving an ale, called "Sample," all weekend, and fifty (50) cents of every pint sold will be donated to Mockingbird. The ale is "a big, hoppy amber," that was "brewed with caramel malts and generous late kettle and dry hops for a touch of malt sweetness." It also has "a heady pungent hop aroma, bold resinous hop flavor and a touch of alcohol warmth." In addition it will be sold in mason jars with the Foundation's logo on them! Here are the details:

Thursday, July 18th:  "Summer Honey Tapping Party." $1.00 from every pint of Summer Honey that is sold will benefit The Mockingbird Foundation! There will be live music beginning at 6pm from Whiskey Jezebel (http://whiskeyjezebel.com/) as well as "Complimentary Passed Appetizers" at 6pm. There will also be a 50/50 raffle with 50% of the pot going to the Foundation, with the drawing around 9pm. 

Friday, July 19th through Sunday, July 21st: "Sample" ale will be served in mason jars, with $0.50 from every jar sold going to The Mockingbird Foundation.

The brewery's hours are 11 am until 2 am, and all ages are welcome. Please hit them pre and post show if you can and support this effort! They are right off the Red line at the Grand stop, at One West Grand. From the venue, you walk about twenty minutes to the Red line at Roosevelt (the closest stop to the venue) and head towards Howard. They're 5 stops away (7 or 8 minutes). 

Phish.Net and The Mockingbird Foundation cannot thank Rock Bottom Brewery of Chicago enough for their generosity. This is the first time a brewpub has ever hosted a fundraiser like this and we are blown away. We hope you all support this effort! Thank you!

Hi! We open at 11 am and do not close until 2 am.....you do not need to be 21 to enter Rock Bottom, just to order alcohol. Hope to see you there!

There will be 5 sets of 2 jars given away as consolation prizes in the 50/50 raffle on Thursday night. We will also be giving them away randomly throughout the weekend.
